Jewish Studies. Armenian Studies. Egyptology. Assyriology. Ancient Near Eastern Archaeology. Biblical Studies. Arabic Studies. Turkish Studies. Coptic Studies. The Department of Near Eastern Language and Cultures brings all of these disparate cultural and linguistic studies together, both ancient and modern, into a vibrant interdisciplinary whole. In the NELC department, we make the past come alive.
We make cultural studies of the Middle East relevant to undergraduate students and the larger Los Angeles community, and in our graduate programs, we create the next generation of experts of the ancient and modern Middle Eastern region.
